An effort is being made to get at

ed. Mr. R. T. Hill, Mr. J. H. Nichol
son and Mr. W. C. Tompkins were
appointed a committee to take this
matter up and the following infor

Plant only the Black Valentine
bean. Each farmer will be asked to
plant an acre. It taken 100 pounds
of beans to plant an acre. They must
be planted at the same time to ensure
simultaneous gathering, so that a car
may be loaded. The time to plant
is about the last of March. At least
1,000 pounds of guano should be
used and it is redommended that on
the same?- land sweet potatoes be
grown. Then bean vines turned un
der will add very much to help make
the crop of sweet potatoes. All who
are interested will see the above com

Officers Elected for Edgefield
A long step forward in the march
of progress was taken Monday night
when the stockholders of the Edge
field Produce Exchange met in the
office of Collett Drug Company and
The required amount of stock hav
ing been subscribed and paid for ac
cording to law, election of officers
was taken up with the following re
President, S. B. Nicholson; vice
president, W. A. Byrd; secretary
treasurer, W. A. Collett; general
manager, G. W. M. Taylor.
Board of directors includes the
above mentioned officers and R. T.
Hill,. W. A. Strom, W. C. Tompkins,
A. H. Corley and J. L. Mims
The Exchange will conduct a gen
eral marketing business, keeping in
touch with markets in the principal
cities and, offering to producers of
the county a ready sale for all crops
of vegetables, fruits, melons, etc.
Through preliminary efforts of the
members of the Exchange, a consid
erable acreage will be planted in Irish
potatoes, a car load of seed stock be
ing now on the road. An active cam
paign will now be started to secure
pledges to plant a certain number of
acres in beans. A committee consist
ing of R. T. Hill, W. C. Tompkins,
and J. H. Nicholson will press this
matter upon the attention of the far
mers, with information as to the pos
sibilities in this line.
It is believed that this community
now has a splendid opportunity to
reap som? of the benefits that have
made truckers rich in other localities,
and certainly we need some relief
from the unhappy conditions under
which all have labored the past two
years. The Exchange is not asking for
a.-.vthing from the community except
an opportunity to present through its
officers and directors their plans and
methods, and also to point out the
possibilities of splendid profits in
trucking. Beginning in a small way,
the farmer will have something to sell
throughout the year, instead of one
crop, cotton, in the fall, and that very
uncertain. The Produce Exchange of
fers a market for these crops, some
thing lacking until now, but a real
need, which is now filled.
All the farmers of the county are
invited to call on any of the officers
of the Exchange at any time, and find
out just what is being done.
All officers are to serve without
salary. The objects of the organiza
tion as set forth in'the charter are to
assist the farmer to sell his produce.
The organization will make contracts
for seed and containers such as bar
rels and crates and handle the pro
duce in car lots. A five per cent com
mission will be charged which is sup
posed to be sufficient to cover the ac
tual expense of marketing the pro
duce. The organization will keep in
touch with the daily markets and
provide ways and means of shipr' g
the produce. It is no money making
scheme of the incorporators but rath
er a sacrificing attempt on the part
of some to lend a helping hand in
these strenuous times. The question
now is, will the farmer make use of
this help and try to produce some
thing that will bring success to this
boll weevil, stricken country?
Death of Mrs. Zelpha
The death is announced of Mrs.
Zelpha E. Thurmond, which occurred
at the residence of her uaughter, Mrs.
Arthur Dorn, six miles out on the
Milledgeville Road, Monday night at
'5 o'clock where the funeral services
will be conducted at the Red Oak
Grove Baptist church this morning at
ll o'clock. Rev. G. W. Bussey will of
ficiate, and the interment will occur
in the Red Oak Grove cemetery.
Mrs. Thurmond is survived by
three daughters, Mrs. Arthur Dorn,
of Richmond county, Mrs. John Mat
thews of Colliers, and Mrs. Fannie
Bush of Modoc, one brother Samuel
Prince of Modoc and twenty-four
grandchildren and seven great-grand
children.-Augusta Chronicle, Jan
The announcement of the death of
Mrs. Thurmond caused much genu
ine sorrow among her friends through
out the county, many of them know
ing nothing of her previous illness.
Mrs. Thurmond was one of the pil
lars of Red Oak Grove church, her
faithfulness under all circumstances
being an inspiration to the entire
membership of the church. But it ,
was in the woman's, work of the
church that her zeal, loyalty and lead
ership counted for the most. Seldom
does one find a more devout and more
consecrated Christian that was Mrs.
Thurmond and it was her largeness
?f heart, broad sympathy, depth of
soul and unselfish service that made
her so'greatly revered and so highly
estemed. Surely her church and com
munity have sustained a loss'which it
is well nigh impossible to fill. Her
children, all of whom are an honor to
her consecrated life, have much to be
grateful for. Their heritage through
and from her life is indeed a rich
House Endorses Marketing
Cooperative marketing of cotton
was strongly indorsed in a resolu
tion passed by the house of repre
sentatives yesterday and every farm
er in the state was urged to sign the
contract. The extension forces of
Clemson college were urged to con
tinue to lend their full cooperation
and assistance in the movement as

"Whereas, a campaign is now be
ing conducted in the state of South
Carolina for the formation of the
South Carolina Cotton Growers' Co
operative association to be composed
of South Carolina cotton growers,
landlords and tenants and to be
formed for the one specific purpose
of selling their cotton crop coopera
"Whereas, the formation of such a
cooperative marketing association
will tend to eliminate many of the
evils which now surround the market
ing of our principal crop, such as
country damage, undergrading and
dumping of a great portion of the
crop on the market in a few weeks'
time and will result in the stabiliz
ing of the market and insure the far
mer of the fact that his cotton will be
properly warehoused, graded, stapled
and sold at the best possible figure;
"Therefore be it resolved, by the
house of representatives, the senate
concurring, That we hereby indorse
most heartily the movement for the
organization of the South Carolina
Cotton Grawers' Cooperative asso
"That we urge every farmer to
sign the contract at the earliest pos
"That we urge the bankers, mer
chants and business men of the state
to assist in the campaign for the
necessary number of signatures to
make the contract operative; and
"That we urge the extension forces
of .Clemson College to continue to
lend their full cooperation and as
sistance in this movement^, believing
that they can be of no greater ser
vice to the state at this time than in
the vigorous prosecution of this cam
